I am a little confused about Holy Name Society. I always was under the impression that it is a group for Catholic men. However, I saw an article in my diocesan newspaper that mentioned women who were in the group. Are women now allowed to join? Are the Holy Name Society groups in some parishes men only and co-ed in other parishes? Are there any Holy Name Society groups that are women only?
On a side note, I got an envelope for Holy Name Society dues with my church envelope packet in the past. I threw it out because I am a woman and didn’t think I was able to join. I would be interested if the group did allow women.
